Wimning run ends for Egerton Park Seconds
Egerton Park Second XI's winning run came to an end with a home defeat against second-placed Blaby Village on Saturday.
Asked to bat first, Park lost Tyler and Simons cheaply before fine knocks from Harry Wells (39) and Paul Bailey (54) set up a strong foundation.
But as wickets started to fall, only Pedlar, the big-hitting Creed and Beeken managed to press on, leaving the home side 174-8 at tea.
Wells and Beeken struck and Simons was back among the wickets to reduce Blaby to 60-3.
But Collington and Doyle took the game away from Park, and despite two more scalps from Wells and Simons, the visitors chased down the total with three overs and five wickets to spare.
Director of cricket David Rodenby said: “The team fought hard, but just got outplayed on the day.”
Park: Tyler 2, Wells 39, Simons 6, Bailey 54, Burdett 0, Jeary 2, Creed 33, Pedlar 7*, Beeken 11, Barnard 5, Extras 15. Total: 174-8.
Bowling: Creed 8-0-41-0; Beeken 9-2-24-1; Wells 7-0-36-2; Simons 7-2-22-2; Barnard 5-0-30-0; Jeary 4-1-18-0.
